Log in to Side Door and make sure you are currently operating as the desired Artist searching for matches (click on your profile icon at the top right of the screen to swap profiles).
Click Manage. This will bring you to the Connect tab where you can find Spaces and Presenters tailored to your Artist profile preferences.
This page will populate Host space by default. To switch to searching for Presenters, click on Presenters under Make New Connections on the left.
Refine your search by entering keywords in the Search field, Selecting a Location and radius, and/or checking ‘Has hosted a Side Door show’ or ‘Has profile image’.
From the results provided to the right of the platform, you will be able to look at a Presenter profile’s photos and review shows they are involved with (if applicable).
To reach out to a Presenter, click the Message button to initiate a connection or the ‘X’ button to dismiss the profile. The Presenter will not see that you have dismissed them.
After you’ve messaged a Presenter, you don’t need to do anything else for now. If the Presenter accepts your message request, the conversation will move into your Connections tab. Continue the conversation there and subsequently begin the Booking Process.
PS. Are you an artist that wants to indicate to Presenters where/when you'll be available, and be surfaced to Presenters’ search results page?
